100 thoughts on “Watch Teacher Confront Republican Senator On Gun Control | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC

  1. The Republicans will NEVER do something against guns because it is one of their funding sources! They laugh at the stupid people who cry "Do something" and then are aggravated but STILL vote for Republicans because they have been brainwashed into despising Democrats as 'communists, socialists' or whatever. It is one big Dunning-Kruger Effect from beginning till end.

  2. 3:35 "… about mental health being a key issue in most school shootings, which my friends who are psychologists tell me, which is just not accurate. A very small percentage of the shooters have mental health concerns."
    So, we are essentially being told that most school shooters are normal and sane.
    4:53 "And in fact people who have mental health concerns are more apt to be victims of violence instead of perpetrate it."
    So, sane violent individuals seek out the mentally ill. Perhaps even as preferred targets?
    What a load. The other person, Mike Lupica, is a sportswriter who has "the right" opinions and was called in to express them. Another load.

  3. Civil War is lurking in the background. AK-47's and assault weapons are bought and stored. What for? Guess once. Are Americans waiting for the keg to be lit? Americans are brainwashed. Has anyone ever read the Second Amendment.? There is nothing there about gun ownership like today. Government cannot be fought with militia any more. Jeez. How stupid can a population be?

  4. Gun reform is important.All these stories are but do we need to see only this all day.What about Jeffry Epstien he's dead.There is a huge story here affecting America.Why have you guys dropped this story?

  5. Where’s Betsy Devos⁉️
    She was talking about teachers having the guns next, leaving a deranged teacher in position to shoot the kids they don’t Like⁉️⁉️

    And by the Way
    Somebody needs to track down Nancy’s Pelosi’s
    Husband and the roles he is playing with weapons of mass destruction.

    This might be like the PP takes, to keep the Leader and others Quiet in Congress (both Sides)..

    I’m just putting out there, If you’re not Faked, then Do your Research to the core of Who is Actually behind – Drugs and Weapons being distributed, Who are the Key Beings involved

    It’s Pretty Obvious Now
    – that those in Charge, don’t care for the Children – After they Are Born.

  6. I know people are sick of hearing what happened in Australia but after a mass shooting 30 years ago we gave up our weapons. I had guns as I enjoyed marksmanship as a hobby, but I knew we had to band together on this. Their were protests. Some politicians lost their jobs over it. But the government stood strong. Only those in the country got to keep them for animal safety, and only limited capacity rifles. My children are in their 20's and I never once worried that they were going to be shot or stabbed at school. More importantly, THEY never worried that they wouldn't be safe. We can still own guns but there are very thorough background checks. Come on America. Start protesting in the streets. You will never be the land of the free, if you are scared for your life all the time.

  7. Anyone who stands in an environment where there are innocent people and without provocation gun down dozens of people have to have some kind of mental health issue! But the issue is not documented, or clinically reported! Teachers are hired to teach not train students about active shootings! The weak mealy-mouth Republican Party is worthless as a smear of dog S-it on the bottom of Trump's shoe!

  8. This is STUPID. Americans Need to be Adults and Protect Themselves as the US Constitution allows With Guns. It's Not the Governments Job to protect us it is OUR Job and Our Responsibility! If you Stupid People allow our government to break the US Constitution and take away our right to defend ourselves, Only the Criminals will Have Guns and Americans will be in a lot worse shape than they in in Now. The Do Something the government should do is stop trying to take away OUR RIGHT to defend ourselves! Buy a Gun and learn how to use it!

    How the Nazis Used Gun Control

    The Weimar Republic’s well-intentioned gun registry became a tool for evil.
    The perennial gun-control debate in America did not begin here. The same arguments for and against were made in the 1920s in the chaos of Germany’s Weimar Republic, which opted for gun registration. Law-abiding persons complied with the law, but the Communists and Nazis committing acts of political violence did not.
    In 1931, Weimar authorities discovered plans for a Nazi takeover in which Jews would be denied food and persons refusing to surrender their guns within 24 hours would be executed. They were written by Werner Best, a future Gestapo official. In reaction to such threats, the government authorized the registration of all firearms and the confiscation thereof, if required for “public safety.” The interior minister warned that the records must not fall into the hands of any extremist group.

    In 1933, the ultimate extremist group, led by Adolf Hitler, seized power and used the records to identify, disarm, and attack political opponents and Jews. Constitutional rights were suspended, and mass searches for and seizures of guns and dissident publications ensued. Police revoked gun licenses of Social Democrats and others who were not “politically reliable.”
    During the five years of repression that followed, society was “cleansed” by the National Socialist regime. Undesirables were placed in camps where labor made them “free,” and normal rights of citizenship were taken from Jews. The Gestapo banned independent gun clubs and arrested their leaders. Gestapo counsel Werner Best issued a directive to the police forbidding issuance of firearm permits to Jews.
    In 1938, Hitler signed a new Gun Control Act. Now that many “enemies of the state” had been removed from society, some restrictions could be slightly liberalized, especially for Nazi Party members. But Jews were prohibited from working in the firearms industry, and .22 caliber hollow-point ammunition was banned.
    The time had come to launch a decisive blow to the Jewish community, to render it defenseless so that its “ill-gotten” property could be redistributed as an entitlement to the German “Volk.” The German Jews were ordered to surrender all their weapons, and the police had the records on all who had registered them. Even those who gave up their weapons voluntarily were turned over to the Gestapo.
    This took place in the weeks before what became known as the Night of the Broken Glass, or Kristallnacht, occurred in November 1938. That the Jews were disarmed before it, minimizing any risk of resistance, is the strongest evidence that the pogrom was planned in advance. An incident was needed to justify unleashing the attack.
    That incident would be the shooting of a German diplomat in Paris by a teenage Polish Jew. Hitler directed propaganda minister Josef Goebbels to orchestrate the Night of the Broken Glass. This massive operation, allegedly conducted as a search for weapons, entailed the ransacking of homes and businesses, and the arson of synagogues.
    SS chief Heinrich Himmler decreed that 20 years be served in a concentration camp by any Jew possessing a firearm. Rusty revolvers and bayonets from the Great War were confiscated from Jewish veterans who had served with distinction. Twenty thousand Jewish men were thrown into concentration camps, and had to pay ransoms to get released.
    The U.S. media covered the above events. And when France fell to Nazi invasion in 1940, the New York Times reported that the French were deprived of rights such as free speech and firearm possession just as the Germans had been. Frenchmen who failed to surrender their firearms within 24 hours were subject to the death penalty.

Frenchmen who failed to surrender their firearms within 24 hours were subject to the death penalty.

    No wonder that in 1941, just days before the Pearl Harbor attack, Congress reaffirmed Second Amendment rights and prohibited gun registration. In 1968, bills to register guns were debated, with opponents recalling the Nazi experience and supporters denying that the Nazis ever used registration records to confiscate guns. The bills were defeated, as every such proposal has been ever since, including recent “universal background check” bills.
    As in Weimar Germany, some well-meaning people today advocate severe restrictions, including bans and registration, on gun ownership by law-abiding persons. Such proponents are in no sense “Nazis,” any more than were the Weimar officials who promoted similar restrictions. And it would be a travesty to compare today’s situation to the horrors of Nazi Germany.

  10. So much division, when we need unification. This is so sad. Americans should not have to live in fear for their lives or the lives of their children.

  11. CHILDREN HAVE ALL RIGHTS TO BE SAFE !! School should be the most safest places of all!! not mostly feared! TEACHERS SHOULD GET PAID MORE THAN all REPUBLICANS! She is my kind of teacher!!!!! God bless you!!

  12. If the moron does not know the difference between hunting guns and guns for arm forces, then he should not talk about gun laws,period

  13. Yes, I'm never going to vote for a republican again! Listening to this teacher is awe inspiring to say the least. I have said it many times that I have more guns than I should have and even have a Russian AK. I would GLADLY give up every one of it would save one child in school, or anywhere else from having to run and hide or heaven forbid being shot down. Please vote these Inhuman, unfeeling people out of office and put someone in there that will
    "DO SOMETHING"!!?

  14. NRA owns Mitch McConnell, the Grim Reaper.
    The Grim Reaper is murdering Americans.
    The Grim Reaper has been blocking effective legislation for years.
    Look at Malevolent Mitch’s history of blocking progress
    Think of Guantanamo and The Grim Reaper’s role in blocking legislation.

  15. The Babe Ruth analogy is priceless. A reporter should ask president know nothing that one.
    Of course, he has never given a straight answer in his entire life. Besides, it isn't as if he knows who "The Babe" is.

  16. GOP just sticks to the same old same old false narrative. Vote Them out. Save our Country from our White Supremest President and the feckless GOP who are shamefully allowing this disaster to happen. Get rid of Ernst and Grassley and every other NRA funded politician. Thank goodness for people like this teacher who are speaking out. Eliminate “active shooter” from the American vocabulary.

  17. All members of congress need to listen to the majority of the electorate and not to an organisation like the NRA who have lost all credibility.

  18. Here's the deal, there are fatal auto accidents – some on the way to school so, I propose ALL cars be banned from now on.

  19. I don't understand why anyone would say that mass murderers have no mental problems – I don't believe that anyone in his "right mind" could plan and carry out the execution of innocent human beings, whether he uses a gun, a molotov cocktail, a big rig, a box truck, an improvised explosive device, or any other device.

  20. If Sen Ernst is concerned about counsellors, then find more money to hire them. Money for more counsellors; helping identify those students who are at risk of becoming the "angry young men" who become the archetype mass shooter; and assisting in "deprogramming' the anger, isolation and hate that these active shooters seem to have can help as well as regulating the owning and bearing of firearms. As important as universal background checks are, there are other ideas that can be morphed into legislation. Congress needs to quit being so obsessed with doing one thing at a time. Like immigration, infrastructure and healthcare, gun violence needs a holistic approach to resolve it.

  21. Hello people l was never marriaged with the official cherry woman but I not not responsible from divorces from nobody

  22. It's about extremism. With Trump fanning hate, some idiots will become more extreme even with no mental health, so much so that hate will drive idiots with normal mental health to conduct extreme action. Period.

  23. The NRA with a membership of less than 6% of the country is running the country in such an important area of public safety. They defy the 90% of the country that wants sensible gun legislation. And it's not really the membership, most of them want background checks and the safe storage of guns. It's the gun manufacturers who only care about the money. If we can't defeat the policies of the NRA when they are in financial turmoil, when will we ? Your 2nd amendment rights can still remain safe with the elimination of assault weapons, large magazine capacities, and background checks.. Try field dressing a deer after you have shot him with an AR-15.

  24. Is it normal in the USA today to see armed police at every meeting in the public areas ? What does that tell us ? That the country is gripped with fear of mass shootings, terror attacks and other violent behavior ? The Land of the free and the best demacracy the world has ever seen, seems to becoming a 3rd world country. A raving lunatic as president, who sucks up to dictators and murderous thugs like Kim, Putin and the grotesque ruler of Saudi Arabia. He adores them and want to be like them. With his small fingers, orange skin and hair, post order brides, Poppy`s dollars, bankrupsies, hatespeech and clueless children.

  25. How many school children have died in school from a fire or a tornado? How many children come to school anxious about school fires or tornadoes? Stupid Senator, it’s not the same.

  26. Mental health. Brilliant. We have a mental health crisis with the counterfeit president. What an excellent place to start with addressing mental health.

  27. Countries at war teach their children,to hide ,be silent, these children will be hunted forever
    What war is America in,that your child should be taught to be affraid and hide
    A country at war with its own country 😧😧 stop hate rallies,stop NRA from selling automatic gun's,
    And the war America against America will end,and your child can be a child again

  28. Maybe she should take her bread bags and go f herself. You ever try walking with plastic bags over your shoes senator? I grew up poor in rural iowa, we put the bags over the sock and inside our shoes. Her breadbag story was charming but total bullcrap. I was poor, i used plastic bags to stay dry, my shoes weren't worth anything but keeping feet dry was. SHE'S a liar.

  29. All the shooters does not have mental illness, they have clean background checks ( that’s why police can’t find any motive conclusion) Sometimes people snap in the darkest time in life and take it upon themselves unto others.

  30. Kids are brainwashed by liberal socialist teachers starting in Great Schools. Actually gun save on average 600 lives a day in America.

  31. That teacher Should be carrying a gun in school it would SAVE MANY LIVES if a shooter came into the school.WAKE UP

  32. We are going to discuss…blah blah blah.. and mental health ..blah.. blah.. and how many people will be killed whicle you discuss it….

  33. EVERY other nation on the planet has citizens with mental health issues yes have much less gun violence. This is nothing but the NRA script, being read to Americans by paid government employees.
    Maybe they should be fired for moonlighting.

  34. Voted out that senator if she is not doing her job. If my employer is not happy with my performance and I am giving him a run around, I am sure I will lose my job. This elected lazy senator should be treated with no difference.

  35. If Americans really do want weapons control, they will VOTE OUT EVERY Republican Senator, or we who CARE ABOUT OUR NATION'S CHILDREN will know you Republican voters really don't care about them at all.

  36. The clearest, loudest message that the Republicants can understand is to VOTE THEM ALL OUT OF OFFICE! They understand that.

  37. We need to vote these Republicans out of office decisively. The GOP is not Grand anymore. Seriously, what do you think Abraham Lincoln would say about the Republicans today? He is more of a Democrat than a Republican and Andrew Jackson is more of a Republican than a Democrat. In our history, the parties flipped.

  38. The only thing a child should have to worry about when they go to school is there a test today that I forgot to study for not will I make it home alive.

  39. we have a serious problem here…..we have to figure out how many guns belong in americans hands….if any…..this is what happens when u remove God from the culture….illegal gun possesion should carry a 10 year term minimum….AND…let's increase the legal age for ownership to 35….and let's put a cap on how many video games featuring and based on gun related action each company is allowed to create…same thing with the major motion picture industry….we need a cap….and religion in schools..we NEED that….if u don't want your kid in that school,then take him somewhere else….and let's consider the fact that sinister and shadowy organizations may be secretly exposing us to  brainwashing techniques and subtle levels of chemicals…in order to change our physiology…for their benefit of course…..if u think we don't have the money,know-how,resources and technology to do such terrible things…then you're living in a fantasy world….if u were the richest ,most powerful person in the world,u would most likely b seduced one way or another by either the power,or the peer pressure around you…u would most likely practice nefarious acts through the guise of PHILANTHROPY…….(u guys better start reading more…..use the internet for all it's worth)

  40. That’s awesome they stopped another mass shooting but let’s face it will they be able to stop them all because even one mass shooting will mean many of us Americans may one day be mourning the loss of one or several loved ones.

  41. If you are scared —that takes up a lot of energy. Children need their energy to master [the] school. We need to get rid of Donald Trump as soon as possible.

  42. We, the people, need to UNITE and FORCE congress to obey us!!!! WE RULE!!!! Will it take killings involving congressmen's/congresswomen's family members?? I hope not, but that may be what it will take.

  43. Thats quite a response… we're going to think about talking about it… sooo after you think about talking about it, will you actually talk about it? After you think and talk, whats next?

  44. in political language "We're gonna take a good look at everything", means "we're gonna wait until it blows over"

  45. Republicans are bought and paid for by the NRA. So until you stop voting for these useless Republicans nothing will change.

  46. The reason we get all these MASS MURDERS is because the GOP ERASED THE FIRST HALF OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT IN 2008!

    The 2nd Amendment- A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

    The GOP/NRA 2nd Amendment- The right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

    See any difference now? The GOP erased the part about the WELL REGULATED MILITIA because that's the part that makes clear that the 2nd Amendment was designed for the MILITARY, NOT CIVILIANS!!

  47. Lie lie lie Read what the CDC 60-65% are suicides
    You won’t take the guns
    from the thugs. You are setting your kids and Grandkids for Communism Don’t fall for it. It’s the creeps doing school shooting to get their agenda thru. Stop being scared and learn how to handle a gun so you can protect yourself and family and students
    Most mental health victims kills themselves not others. Read the facts don’t listen to these self served politicians

  48. That man talking right now is NOT trying to help you. I’ll bet you he’s helping himself. Grow some balls learn how to respect a gun and be safe and carry one
    I don’t know what I’ll do without my deer meat

  49. Sen. Ernst not earnest about gun reform in this country, only about earning her NRA paycheck. Another Republican in their back pocket, complicit in the American carnage of gun deaths.

  50. Republican Rep. King is king of crap and, my, how they love their crap out in manure country. But this new crap he spewed may just prove too toxic even for rural Iowans to swallow.

  51. Ernst made a big deal about castrating baby pigs – but she's too scared to take even a butter knife to the most destructive Hog in the country.

  52. The Second Amendment rational is so bs. TheFounders voted AGAINST giving constituional sanction to personal ownership for personal defence or hunting. The Second Amendment as written and passed had nothing to do with private ownership of guns. The "Right to Bear Arms" is a 17 th century British term that NEVER refered to individual gun ownership but to a military formation like a militia.

  53. The gun manufacturers and gun owners are all on the same side. We all believe in the right to own a firearm for our protection. The politicians need to listen to both sides, not just the people that want to take guns away.

  54. Mental Health problem… the new talking point for Repuliklans as dictated by the NRA. Those white domestic terrorists weren't mentally ill. They were filled with hate inspired by Agolf Twittler and the Republiklans who enable him and the NRA/Gun Manufacturers.

  55. Columbine happened in 1999 20years ago.
    New zealand laws changed 26 days after a mass shooting.
    USA demand better. Vote out those who stop change please. Much love to u all.

  56. We need a gun violence training program for every Senator, Member of Congress and "Occupant" in the White House who is against stricter gun laws. Maybe a virtual reality training simulation where they lose a loved one to gun violence along with the years of missing out on what might have been?? I bet we would have a totally different outlook on this issue.

  57. https://iowastartingline.com/2018/02/15/joni-ernst-got-3-1-million-in-nra-money-made-gun-laws-more-dangerous/

    Ernst has recd millions from NRA – so that's whose agenda she is representing…

  58. THE RIGTH FOR SOMEONE TO OWN GUNS COULDN'T NEVER BE GREATER THAN THE RIGTH TO BE SAVE!!!! SALES OF GUNS IS COSTING LIFES—- N. R A. IS WRITING THE CHEKS FOR EVERY LIFES TAKEN<<< MORE INTELL BACKGROUND CHECKS + MENTAL HEALTH RE-CHECKING + PERSON WAITED LONGER BEFORE GETTING A GUN(((A PERSON KNOWING THAT THIER'S BACKGROUND BEING MORE INTELL/ TAKING LONGER TIME GET )((RETHINK SOME)) AND THEY HAVE ISSUES — KNOW NOT TO TRY<< NRA PUTTING MONEY FIRST!!! POLITICAL PARTIES ARE. BEING PAY BY NRA ——RE–VOTING TIMES_ VOTED FOR NO GUNS CONTROL IS VOTED FOR OTHER LIFE TAKEN!!!!

  59. Vote all Republicans out of power! Don't forget the Democrats who oppose gun control. Vote all these people out of power. Take back the country.

  60. Foolish sheep in the audience, the odds of anyone dying in a mass shooting are astronomically low, think about how many schools there are in America to schools that have been attacked. Your odds of being a casualty in one of these shootings are 1 in 11,125. You people need to wake up and look at the bigger problems such as unemployment, poverty, or literally anything else. Facts don’t care about your feelings. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.businessinsider.com/us-gun-death-murder-risk-statistics-2018-3

  61. More inteligent commenting here than on most videos. Glad people know which party is to blame for not doing something! HINT: = rethuglicons

  62. You want to know what's really awesome? Schools have now decided that having a school resource officer on campus costs too much. So now the kids and staff are like sitting ducks…maybe the democrats want everyone helpless so they can cry for more totalitarian government
